Famous for its idyllic white-sand beaches, azure waters, and oceanfront resorts, the Bahamas sure is a luxury destination. If you are headed to the Bahamas and willing to splurge on an upscale residence, there are many accommodation options in the occupied islands.
However, we recommend the top choice among the most luxurious hotels in the Bahamas– the Ocean Club Resort, off the Four Seasons chain, beautifully situated offshore on Paradise Island. This resort is popular with royalty, celebrities, and the elite. It has also been highly acclaimed for five years, bearing Trip Advisor’s certificate of excellence.
The Ocean Club resort is 19 kilometers from the Lynden Pindling International Airport, accessible by a bridge connecting to the mainland. An authentic town life experience with local restaurants and shops is 2.5 kilometers away in Downtown Nassau.

The ocean-view suites at the Ocean Club resort are furnished to channel a high-end yet vibrant Bahamian personality, and most have private terraces or balconies. The villas are well suited to small groups or families, as they are airy, spacious, and have direct views of the Atlantic Ocean and beautifully landscaped gardens. They also have an enclosed courtyard and a plunge pool. An even more deluxe option is open at this resort; the luxury villa residences are equipped with private infinity pools and kitchens and provide guests with direct beach access. Private residences are also available for extended stays.
Exceptional culinary experiences await you at the Ocean Club resort. Whether you are dining indoors or at the terraces and gardens, the meals on the menu are a mix of Bahamian and New York delights, expertly curated and updated three times a year by Michelin-starred chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Keep an eye out for the lamb chops, fish tacos, and conch salads served with the hotel’s trademark brioche.
